Yogi The Easter Bear

"This is a great TV special that deserves to see the light of day on DVD. It is funny and it shows Yogi and Boo Boo at their best. It earned all kinds of awards when it first aired on Cartoon Network and deservedly so. I highly recommend it to everyone.
There is a much better reason to purchase this DVD if you are a Yogi Bear or Hanna-Barbera fan, though. Warner Home Video could be using this DVD as a test product to see if there is interest in releasing more Yogi Bear on DVD. I don't know this for a fact, but it makes sense. It is important that all Yogi fans support this release with a purchase to help see more classic H-B cartoons come to DVD.
This is an entertaining special in itself and it deserves a place on your DVD shelf. I also recommend buying it to help see more Hanna-Barbera classic cartoons come to DVD as well. This releae has a double-sided implication to it that cannot be ignored. Please buy it."
BARBERA BUT NO HANNA

"Produced by Joseph barbera in 1994, this is still a pretty bland cartoon in the mold of much oh Hanna Barbera's studios work from the 1960's. While Yog and other HB characters certainly had their legions of fans I personally always found them lacking in quality compared to say Warner Bros. or MGM cartoons. I suppose for the little ones that this is a pretty decent, hour-long special, especially if they watch it around Easter time although I don't know that most young kids today really know who Yogi Bear is.
Yogi Bear accidentally ruins the big Easter Jamboree at Jellystone Park just before the arrival of hundreds of kids. Guilt-stricken, Yogi and Boo Boo go in search of the Easter Bunny to try and save the event. But the two discover that the Easter Bunny has been kidnapped! Yogi and Boo Boo must rescue the Easter Bunny and save Easter, before the kids arrive for the Jamboree and before Mister Ranger ships them off to the Siberian Circus.
It's ok. No classic but real little ones might enjoy it."
